Ingredients:

8 oz. mini marshmallows
1/4 cups unsalted butter
8 cups popped popcorn
1/2 cups pretzels *
1/2 cups mixed salted nuts *

Directions:

Place popcorn in a large mixing bowl.

Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Once it has melted, stir in marshmallows and stir until just melted.

Quickly pour melted marshmallow over the popcorn and fold to combine. Pour in pretzels and mixed nuts. Stir to mix.

Using greased heatproof gloves, take a handful of the popcorn mixture and roll it into a ball. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat to form 12 balls. Let sit at room temperature about 15 minutes before serving. Wrap individual popcorn balls in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container.

* You can use seasonal candies to replace the pretzels or nuts, or you can use both. Go crazy!
